Hello, I am attempting to make a script that accepts data on qr code, moves to an appropriate field and input that data. The data i want checked, as well as the data i need inputed into a field, is already on the qr code. Is there a way to do this? Specficially, the data on the qr code looks like this: "XCX0001-patient", with the code being a sticker attached to a piece of paper.

 

So far the "Insert From Device" step is not working and I am left pretty confused on how filemaker interprets barcode data. I have searched this message board and found a few conflicting answers ( such as Need help writing script to integrate barcode scanning , and create a new record triggered by barcode scan ).

 

Any help is appreiciated, thanks!
